Vegetable Dalia

Vegetable Dalia is considered as one of the healthy meals. To prepare it we need broken wheat, veggies and a few spices. I have added onions, tomatoes, green peas, sweet corn and potatoes. You can skip any of these or add more, as you prefer or like. I also added lemon juice which gave it a nice tangy flavor. Hope you enjoy it!!! Also checkout recipe for Sweet Dalia.

  3. While dalia is boiling, heat oil in a pan. Add cumin seeds and let it splutter
